Why?? Why are people idiots and riot because of the loss of a game.
It's just a game! Things like this have to stop! All it does is prove that we need supervision by the police and government because we don't know how to behave ourselves.
Unhappy Vancouver Canucks fans are taking out their anger downtown at losing the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins in Game 7, flipping at least two cars and burning another in a burgeoning riot.

This quote from Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu:
He described the instigators as anarchists and criminals who appeared to be the same people involved in the pre-Olympic demonstrations and noted police saw many equipped with goggles, gasoline and other tools to create damage
And this from Mayor Gregor Robertson:
"They had a game plan that they carried out and it was very difficult to contain. This group was mobile. They split up. They had tools to start fires," said the mayor.
I don't know much about the instigators, whether they're an organized group with a name, or just a loose group of anarchists. They were prepared, no doubt about it, and they were there to riot, not watch a hockey game.

I just heard on the news that there was a small group of people who planned to create a riot no matter who won the game. and saw some video of these guys were waring masks that look familiar to the GUY FAWKES mask from "V". Has anyone considered the possibility that Canadian Intelligence created this mess to give more reason to shut down social sites. One of the first things that the media talked about for the cause of the riot was because of social sites. I find it funny that this is the first "Canadian" team the be in the finals for a few years, cause, you know, EVERY Canadian is a hockey nut!!! I truly believe there is a lot more to this riot than what is being made public. It just seems scripted and the timing could not have been any better than this! Especially when my neighbors to the south are going through the exact same issue with social sites as well.

And to think, the Canadians, and Canucks fans, should be used to losing. I mean, Canada WAS founded as a French Colony after all. And we know how awesome the French go at winning things. Even when they fight themselves........

But this is something new I don't remember years ago people rioting over sports events.
The same thing happened in Vancouver in 94 when the team lost a similar situation.
